GF 5 question? Accidentally won a bid on eBay
4 months ago

I tried to search the forum and some other places but can't seem to find some decent info on the G5. Reason I ask is because I accidentally won a bid on eBay for a brand new in box Panasonic G5 black body for $155.00. Most of the things I read is that the camera has "plasticky" feeling, cheaply made, etc. I want to know how the sensor performs. Are you satisfied with the sharpness on this model? How about low light performance (I know that this model is about 2 years old so I'm not really expecting much)? For those that owns the G5, what are your thoughts, experience with this model. If this has a good IQ, I will put my 14-140 II and put back the 12-32 kit lens on my GM1. Thanks in advance for your input.

Hopefully it will perform good enough for me as a second camera. Still saving for the higher end Panasonic or Olympus m4/3 body such as the EM-1 or GH4 for Christmas or maybe sooner
